The latest issue of the "Bonds Quarterly Statistics" report looks at the performance
of SIX Swiss Exchange's Bonds segment in the fourth quarter of 2017.
Today, SIX Swiss Exchange published the latest edition of its
Bonds Quarterly Statistics[pdf]. The
turnover in the CHF Bonds segment amounted to CHF 31.2 billion in the fourth quarter of 2017, an increase of
6% compared to the previous quarter, but a decrease of 7%
compared to the fourth quarter in the previous year. In the Non-CHF Bonds segment, the turnover in the fourth quarter of 2017
was CHF 5.1 billion. This is a slight decrease compared to the previous quarter, but an increase of
28% compared to the fourth quarter of 2016.
Positive trend in Foreign CHF Bonds
The increase in the fourth quarter in CHF Bonds was mainly driven by increased trading activity in Foreign Bonds, which
increased by 26% to CHF 13.4 billion. In contrast, turnover in bonds issued by the Schweizer
Eidgenossenschaft in particular saw a decline (- CHF 1.7 billion). All in all, previous year's turnover in CHF Bonds were
significantly exceeded in October 2017, then fell below the previous year's level in November and December.
